Kanye West hit back after he was booed at Paris Fashion Week.

The 'New Slaves' rapper and his reality TV star wife, Kim Kardashian West, were heckled after they reportedly showed up 40 minutes late to Lanvin's runway show on Thursday (25.09.14), but he insisted it was only because they were backstage with the brand's designer Alber Elbaz.

The 37-year-old star walked across the runway to confront his critics and said: ''Don't boo us. Alber asked to see us. Don't boo us. We're not late. We're not late.''

The duo, who have 15-month-old daughter North, are said to delayed the start of the show, which only kicked off once they took their seats in the front row.

Other guests present included American Vogue editor Anna Wintour and French actress Catherine Deneuve.

The incident came just hours after 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kim, 33, was attacked by Hollywood prankster Vitalii Sediuk as she made her way to the Balmain show with her husband and mother Kris Jenner.

The Ukranian-born media personality, who previously accosted stars including Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo Dicaprio and Will Smith, was captured on video moving towards the reality TV star as she exited her car and tackled her causing her to fall forward but her bodyguard caught her before she hit the ground.
